Explore the mystique of Japanese kimono through unstitching: Quietly spend a day taking apart a hand-sewn kimono and experience the joy of deconstructing the garment stitch by stitch.

Join four others in this special workshop that includes a silent hour in the morning and in the afternoon, as well as a delightful catered lunch. Leave with flat panels of kimono fabric, your own Clover ripper, and a feeling of peace. Bring nothing but a willingness to relax and enjoy a stress-free day.
